Maidenwell Astronomical Observatory

We're moving to the Kingaroy airport..!!!
 
After 10 years in Maidenwell, this major Astro Tourist attraction is now in the process (as of March 6, 2015) of physically relocating its buildings and telescopes to the Kingaroy Airport, which is just 4 minute drive from the town's CBD. 
 
Located on nearly half an acre in Geoff Raph Drive (off Warren Truss Drive) the new facility is directly opposite the Kingaory Vintage Tractor & Machinery display. 
 
Not only has the town of Kingaroy many Motels, Hotels and Eatrey outlets, many of them will be offering our Observatory visitor, a 'special deal'. This could be a discount on whatever the venue wants to offer.  
 
Weather permitting, we hope to be up and running sometime in late May - early June.
Announcemnt of the opening for the public will be on our FaceBook page, the Media and of course, here on the website. 
 
Our contact details remain the same. 
 
Progress of our move is on our Facebool page.   Just click the FB icon.
